Thread: Count Down

  1. #1

    Question Count Down

    i was wondering if someone knew an effective way to make a program that is able to count down but does not fill the screen. i would hope it to look like this.

    Percent Complete: 12% (and I would wish that only the digit changes) if anyone could drop me a hint on how it would work i'd appreciate it

    Here's how

    you can use gotoxy(x, y)
    to print the text at a particular point everytime...

    keep the x, y coordinates the same and it will print at
    the same spot.

    Hope this helps.

    #include <windows.h>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
        for(int i = 0; i <= 100; i++)
            cout << i << "% Completed";
            system("CLS"); // clear the screen after 500 milliseconds
        cout << "\nInstallation Complete";
        return 0;
    something like that
